Four days later Liverpool played the worst Aston Villa side Iíve ever seen in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley. It was a gimme, an easy passage to the final. Liverpool lost 2-1 on a day when Emre Can played in four different positions
, Lazar Markovic was substituted at half-time for a club-record fourth time in one season, and his replacement, Mario Balotelli, was our best player.
Bringing Glen Johnson on for Joe Allen
, and waiting until the 90th minute to replace Alberto Moreno with Rickie Lambert
, backed up my long-held opinion that Brendan Rodgers was incapable of positively changing a game from the bench
. It encapsulated a shambolic, embarrassing
day in what had become a dreadfully depressing season
